However, for the potential surge to gain traction, the ETH bulls need to crack the bearish 21-daily moving average (DMA) at $1665 on a sustained basis.

Acceptance above the latter could trigger fresh demand, which is likely to drive the prices towards $1998, the pattern target. The next stop  for the bulls is seen at the record highs of $2041.

The 14-day Relative Strength Index (RSI) has pierced through the 50 level, entering the bullish zone. This suggests that the upside is opening up for the no.2 coin.

A failure to resist above the last could fuel a sharp drop towards patter support at $1241.
